On 9th March Tom Blunt, from the Rare Breeds Survival Trust (RBST), gave a comprehensive overview of the role that native rare breeds can play in conservation and regenerative grazing systems. A large number of different livestock options were discussed including; sheep, goats, cattle, equines and pigs. Tom explained some of the differences between species and breeds and their pros and cons as grazers. The slides from the presentation which are full of helpful information and links can be found here Utilising Native Breeds for Conservation and Regenerative Grazing.
Tom also signposted us to the RBST Breed Profiles Handbook
